Penguin Bauble

This week at Bee Crafty our challenge is 'Christmas Extras'. We want to see you make something other than a Christmas card. See what the Design Team have made for inspiration here. I've made a bauble using the penguin images. Remember your entry needs to contain a digi image.

This is for these challenges:

I bought the bauble ages ago, it was filled with ribbons. I printed the penguin image out and shaded with alcohol markers and then ran a piece of patterned paper through the printer with the same image to paper piece the snowy base. The beads are sprinkled in for fake snow and I hung a silver charm on a bit of silver thread before tying a polka dot bow.

This is a gift for a friend as our tree will be decorated in red and silver and white this year - if Zac doesn't destroy it within minutes of us putting it up that is!

There's STILL time to enter my Charity Candy - please send your handmade cards and gifts for this worthwhile cause and enter my candy at the same time. Details here.



  1. what a cute idea, Victoria. Penguins are so "it" right now and too cute to begin with. It is sure to put a smile on your friend's face. Thanks for joining the DCRU Challenge this week. Hope to see you there again soon.
